    Default OB epidural

    Promo: Code Books
    If I have a physican go in and give a OB epidural and another physican goes in 15 minutes afterward and believes it needs to be replaced and does so, can I bill for both placements?

    We have a cap on our OB start and stop time.

    Thank you!

    I am not familiar with OB epidurals but I did find something that seemed like it sounded correct when I searched on the internet and found a thread from this list from 09

    http://www.aapc.com/memberarea/forum...ad.php?t=23815

    Below I copied the response from another forum member:


    "Please refer to the complete CPT description of ASA code 01967. It includes initial placement "and/or any necessary replacement" therefore no additional/separate charge is warranted for replacement."
